Suburban Judge Teaches Chicago Carjacker Lesson, Sentences Him To 40 Years In Prison For Hijacking Pregnant Woman’s Car
A Chicago man made a critical mistake during his latest crime spree. He left the city and Cook County and crossed into the suburbs in DuPage County. Kim Foxx and Lori Lightfoot have no power there as the thug learned the hard way.
Emanuel Embry, 23, carjacked a pregnant woman in the Chicago suburb of Downers Grove. A judge just sentenced him to 40 years in prison. DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said:
“In late 2019, within two-weeks’ time, Mr. Embry, Mr. Washington-Davis, and allegedly Mr. Robinson terrorized DuPage County residents carjacking multiple victims at gunpoint during their short-lived crime spree.
“This afternoon, Judge Reidy sentenced Mr. Embry to forty years behind bars for his role in this violent crime. Combined with Mr. Washington-Davis’s forty-year sentence, the message is clear, if you commit a violent crime in DuPage County, you will be held accountable.”
Berlin’s office issued a statement that said:
“DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced today that a Chicago man who participated in hijacking a pregnant woman’s car from her driveway has been sentenced to forty years in the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC).
“Emanuel Embry, 23 (d.o.b. 12/28/1999), formerly of the 100 block of N. Wood Street, Chicago, appeared in court today where Judge Michael Reidy handed down the sentence. “On July 7, 2022, Embry entered a plea of guilty to one count of Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking with a firearm, a Class X Felony.
“On October 17, 2022, Judge Reidy sentenced one of Embry’s co-defendants, Daysean Washington-Davis, 22 (d.o.b. 7/12/2000), formerly of the 2200 block of Marshall Blvd., Chicago, to forty years in the IDOC.
“The case against Embry’s other co-defendant, Martavious Robinson, 20 (d.o.b. 7/30/2002), formerly of the 6400 block of S. Peoria, Chicago, is scheduled to go to trial on June 27, 2023. Robinson is charged with one count of Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking and one count of Armed Robbery With a Firearm, both Class X Felonies.
“On December 13, 2019, at approximately 2:27 p.m., the Downers Grove Police Department responded to a carjacking that had just occurred on Hawkins Street. An investigation into the matter found that the victim, a pregnant female, was sitting in her vehicle in her driveway when she was approached by two masked, armed individuals, later identified as Embry and allegedly Robinson. It is further alleged that the men ordered the woman out of her vehicle and drove off in her car.
“Washington-Davis was the driver of the vehicle that brought Embry and allegedly Robinson to the Hawkins Street address. A friend of the victim had observed the alleged carjacking and followed the stolen vehicle. It is alleged that when the stolen vehicle was stopped in traffic, the victim’s friend approached the vehicle at which time the occupants exited the vehicle and fled.
“As the victim’s friend moved the victim’s vehicle off the roadway, one of the offenders entered the victim’s friend’s car and drove away.
“Through the course of their investigation, authorities apprehended Robinson on December 13, 2019.
“On December 17, 2019, authorities took Washington-Davis into custody from his apartment and several hours later authorities apprehended Embry in Chicago.
“Further investigation into recent carjackings found that the same three individuals, Washington-Davis, Embry, and allegedly Robinson were involved a previous armed carjacking in Warrenville on December 13, 2019,” the statement said.
